Design モデルのデザインについて

Waste pickers is designed to have the feeling of being reborn from waste. We aimed for a design that fully captures the randomness of the materials being disposed of. For that reason each design is unique and cannot realistically be assembled again. The gradation, stripes, and blocking are made from the uniqueness of seat belt material. Layered design looks urban yet avant-garde and we think this is something quite special.

Material 素材について

Seatbelt is a strong material designed to protect life in the event of an accident. It is disposed of if industrial tests fail to ensure a 2-ton weight stress test, even if only slightly. The durability is more than enough for a bag and uniqueness of the material, such as fold line and texture, are well reflected in its structure and design.

Production
製造

Production 製造について

Spin seat belt one by one to make a part of bag. Whole process is exclusively handmade by craftsman. Takes more production time than usual so seat belt collection is hard to do mass production. Various colors and texture of seat belts are discarded together so all mixed up. Designer selects those seat belts on by one to match together.

The greatest amount of waste produced in the world is seat belt from the massive automobile industry. Seat belt must undergo strict tests to adhere to industry safety standards. When materials don’t pass they are discarded with no further use in the automotive market.

However, even those failed materials have great specification and quality. We rescue them and give new life to this highly useful object. Unbeknownst to many, seat belt has fantastic qualities that make it an ideal candidate for a beautifully up-cycled bag. Furthermore, it has unique strength (like a 2 ton weight capacity), water resistance, and other properties that are hard to come by with other off the shelf bags.
